Obama/Biden State Department Pick Victoria Nuland Wasn’t Asked about the Steele Dossier and Other Ukraine Related Topics – Given a Pass at Senate Hearing

Victoria Nuland was a key individual in the Obama State Department.  She also was involved in some major miscues and what many believe was major corruption.  Yet none of this was addressed in a recent confirmation hearing in front of the US Senate.

We reported on Nuland in November 2019:

We know that Obama State Department Victoria Nuland was involved in numerous activities in the Obama White House while working for John Kerry.  Nuland first was noted when she was caught lying to reporters about Obama’s Benghazi talking points.  Nuland then came to light in 2014 when she was caught on tape saying “F**k the EU”.

We also know that Obama’s State and Justice Departments assisted billionaire and Democrat donor George Soros in an attempt to control Ukraine’s oil and gas industry.

In late 2015 Nuland was connected to a coup that the Deep State was involved in.  Obama officials including Nuland and the Ukrainian Ambassador discussed toppling the Ukrainian Government and replacing officials, with then VP Joe Biden’s approval.

We also noted that the Epoch Times had an excellent piece on this time period in the Obama White House –

State Department Assistant Secretary Victoria Nuland worked with U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt in late 2015 to create a plan to force the firing of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, according to Kent. Nuland was also among a network of Obama administration officials involved in the distribution and recirculation of the infamous Steele dossier, the document used by the FBI to secure a maximally intrusive spy warrant to surveil a Trump-campaign associate.

“My understanding is that the conversations that were near-daily between Ambassador Pyatt and Toria Nuland regarding what to do on the way forward then included pitching the office of the Vice President to push President Poroshenko to remove Shokin,” Kent told lawmakers on Oct. 15.

Biden ultimately carried out Nuland’s plan during a visit to Ukraine in December 2015 and has since bragged, on at least two occasions, about forcing Shokin’s firing by threatening to cut off the loan guarantees. At the time Biden exerted pressure on Ukraine, Shokin was investigating Burisma, the Ukrainian gas giant that was paying Biden’s son Hunter Biden to serve on its board of directors. The Ukrainian president asked for Shokin’s resignation two months after Biden’s overture. The Ukrainian Parliament approved the resignation on March 29, 2016.

Here was our post:

HUGE! After Removing Ukrainian Prosecutor Shokin, Obama’s State Department Plotted with Whistleblower Eric Ciaramella in White House – Then Pushed Steele Dossier to FBI

Nuland was also close to Eric Ciaramella, the accused fake whistleblower in the attempted removal of President Trump in the first impeachment proceeding.  They worked together in relation to George Soros in Ukraine:

So it comes as a surprise that the US Senate would not ask Nuland about any of this last week in her confirmation hearing:

State Department nominee Victoria Nuland coasted through her Senate confirmation hearing on Thursday without facing any questions about her role disseminating information from former British spy Christopher Steele during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Nuland, who is nominated for undersecretary of state of political affairs, authorized two meetings during a previous stint at the State Department between government officials and Steele, a former British spy who compiled a dossier alleging collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government…

…The topic did not come up during a drama-free hearing for her confirmation before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday. Not even Republicans who took part in the hearing — Sens. Jim Risch, Ted Cruz and Bill Haggerty — asked Nuland about her knowledge of Steele or the dossier.

This shows us that we cannot count on the current members of Congress to protect this country from corrupt members of the Deep State club.  Americans need to find and elect good people who will make an effort to understand the facts of what is really going on and then have the courage to do something about it.
